Hillside Intermediate School 3

The principal and teachers/staff provide structure for the students, but are the students acknowledge. What brings us to question and just amazes us as a parent(s) is minority students/students are not acknowledge. This review is in behalf parents whom have students whom give there all and are not acknowledge regardless of being a A/B student. My family and I was extremely shocked when our child and other parents discuss to us of their children that attend Hillside the ignorant rewards given to their children. Other parents and us were just extremely baffled in rewards like humming in class, etc... and a chocolate bar to go along with that award. Our child was sadden with no acknowledgement of being a A/B student. Our child informed that he does not hmmm in class that it was the student behind him. Other students whom are A/B students as well received ignorant rewards as well. Are the teachers aware of their students? Are they open minded to grasp and acknowledge students whom already have potential and/or can reach for more? Is it only based on behavior or "she/he said?" Are the students just being judged without being given the opportunity of seeing the students potential. In this new coming year of 2015-2016, will Hillside provide a newer advance structure curriculum? Will students be acknowledge or just misjudge? We have comfort with Hillside to a certain extent but we question will there be more positive changes. Hillside...we are still rooting for you...please make changes...

The administration and faculty at Hillside are outstanding. My daughter is a very bright student and excels in most subject areas. Her teachers have worked hard to differentiate the classroom to make sure that she is appropriately challenged and engaged. The specials and clubs that are offered are diverse enough to allow the kids to take part in activities that interest them and help them to integrate in the school community. This is the ideal step between elementary and middle school education.

Hop Brook is a good school to go to. But unfourtunly Naugatuck does not offer gifted child programs and the schooling is not the greatest but that's not the school's fault.

Both my daughters were in Preschool here before we left Naugatuck. It was a great experience, and I was sorry to leave. The children were treated with respect and care. And both of them got the special services they needed. In fact the naugatuck evaluations and assessments helped us get what we needed in our new town/school.
